– Natural Healing –
Sports massage is targeted to prevent and treat injuries incurred from your sporting or exercise regime mostly using faster strokes and focusing on a group of muscles that are relative to your sport or activity. We employ a systematic manipulation of soft tissue which can speed up the recovery time. Even if you’re not an avid sports player and have limited movement from an old injury then this type of massage can help improve flexibility.
Frequently Asked Questions
How often should an athlete get a Sports Massage?
Most elite athletes get at minimal one massage per week. For most amateur athletes who still take their sport and training seriously or regular gym enthusiasts, once a week to once a fortnight is recommended. For most people who do regular light exercise then once every two, three or four weeks is usually sufficient.
Is it best to get a Sports Massage before or after a workout?
Getting a Sports Massage before working out allows the muscles to get warmed up and stretched out, however the Sports Massage would be carried out in such a way to suit your exercise you are about to undertake. Receiving a massage after a work out allows the body and muscles to relax a bit smoother and help with not being so sore.
